Why DeVry?

Benefits of a Bachelor's Degree

Earning a bachelor’s degree is a major milestone for your education. Having this additional credential on your resume can provide personal and professional benefits, such as:

Broader job possibilities:

Some positions in today’s workforce may require or recommend a bachelor’s degree. By earning one, you may meet the qualifications for a greater number of job opportunities.

 

Specialized knowledge:

A bachelor’s degree provides a broad foundation of knowledge and the opportunity to gain hands-on experience. Having this credential on your resume can let employers know that you are well-versed in your area of study.

 

Potential for higher earnings:

In many cases, workers who have earned a bachelor’s degree tend to have higher wages than those with only a high school diploma.

 

First quarter 2023 data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) shows that workers aged 25 and over with at least a bachelor’s degree had median weekly earnings nearly double of those with only a high school diploma.

 

Personal growth:

Earning a bachelor’s degree can help improve your self-confidence and expand your overall understanding of the world. The communication, writing and critical thinking skills you can gain from a bachelor's program have the potential to be highly applicable in your personal life as well.

 

Job satisfaction:

A bachelor's can help give you the ability to pursue the career you’ve always wanted. Working in an industry you love and are knowledgeable about is a great way to improve your mindset about work.

 

Greater employability:

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), bachelor's degree holders had an unemployment rate of only 2.2% in 2022. This is less than the 4% unemployment rate of those who have only a high school diploma or GED.

 

Comparison

Bachelor's Degree vs. Associate Degree

Both associate and bachelor’s degrees can be valuable preparation for your future but choosing which one to pursue ultimately depends on your personal goals and circumstances.

Program Length

In traditional terms, a bachelor’s degree is a four-year degree, while an associate degree is a two-year degree. However, with our year-round, 8-week class sessions, our Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration, for example, can be earned in as little as 2 years and 8 months with an accelerated schedule (per 12-month period, does not include breaks and assumes year-round, full-time enrollment), 4 years with a normal schedule (per 12-month period, does not include breaks and assumes 2 semesters of full-time enrollment) — or even more quickly with qualifying transfer credits.

Coursework & Skills

When deciding which degree to pursue, it is helpful to look at what you’ll learn from each program. An associate degree is a way to establish a basic set of skills in your area of interest. This can be a great first step if you want to add a credential to your resume in the near future.

A bachelor's degree, on the other hand, provides a deeper dive into business, management and technical skills, as well as your specified area of study. Core courses focus primarily on fundamental skills, while program-specific and specialized courses help you sharpen your skillset in your field of study.

Stackable Credits

At DeVry, many of our associate degree programs are designed to stack into a related bachelor's degree. If you choose to begin with an associate degree, you can apply the qualifying credit hours you’ve earned directly toward your bachelor's at DeVry when you're ready.2 Your Admissions Representative can help explain more based on the associate and bachelor’s degree programs in which you are interested.

Accreditation Matters

DeVry is proud to be accredited by The Higher Learning Commission, www.hlcommission.org. Our Keller Graduate School of Management is included in this accreditation.

FAQs: Bachelor's Degree

What is a bachelor's degree?

A bachelor’s degree is a college degree earned in a specific field of study, such as accounting or information technology. Some students earn a bachelor’s right after high school, while others spend time in the workforce or pursue an undergraduate certificate or associate degree before enrolling in a bachelor’s degree program.

Some fields, particularly those in business management and technology, may require a bachelor’s degree for entry. Other career paths may require this degree for higher-level positions such as management. A bachelor’s can stand on its own or serve as a stepping stone to a graduate degree such as a master’s or MBA. Visit this page for further information to answer the question, what is a bachelor’s degree.

How long does it take to earn a bachelor's degree?

Traditionally, a bachelor’s degree is considered to be a four-year degree, but the actual time it may take you to complete the required number of semester-credit hours to earn a bachelor’s or any other degree depends on several factors. It could take you more or less time, depending on the program you choose, whether you have qualifying transfer credits from another academic institution and whether you are enrolled full time or part time. In some programs, you could gain credit for qualifying previous military training or professional certifications. As an example, our Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration can be earned in as little as 2 years and 8 months with an accelerated schedule (per 12-month period, does not include breaks and assumes year-round, full-time enrollment), 4 years with a normal schedule (per 12-month period, does not include breaks and assumes 2 semesters of full-time enrollment) — or even more quickly with qualifying transfer credits.
